Kansas City man shot outside north Lawrence club

November 4, 2007


A Kansas City man was shot in the leg early Sunday morning after a fight outside of Allstars, 913 N 2nd St., Lawrence police said. He is being treated at Lawrence Memorial Hospital and is believed to be in good condition, Lawrence Police Sergeant Susan Hadl said.

The shooting followed a fight that occurred among ten to fifteen people outside the club. Police who responded to the fight recovered a weapon from one Allstars patron and are interviewing several witnesses.

According to witnesses, a second man fired the shot that hit the Kansas City man in the leg, Sgt. Hadl said. Authorities are looking for a black male in a white hooded sweatshirt.

No further information was available early Sunday.

I'm all for the security cameras. The only ones that should be afraid of them are the criminals! It shouldn't really be considered an invasion of privacy if the cameras are out in a public area, dontcha think?

justthefacts: "Roaches do not like lights."

Thats so true and funny.

ANOTHER shooting in a parking lot?! Here's a real idea to help cut back on the parking lot shooting sprees involving out of town residents who come to Lawrence to party and fight: The owners (or city if they have some extra cash laying around- ha!) should put up dozens of lights in their parking lots, and then aim 4-5 working video cameras at the entire parking lot. Roaches do not like light. And if the cameras do their job (i.e. are not fake) the authorities will at least have good evidence each and every time someone does get shot! That should, in short order, cut way back on fools coming to Lawrence merely to thug it out. Plus, this option elminates the need to pass a new ordinance or manage a new administative law nightmare. Just buy lights and cameras, and say "action"!

Due to strange planetary alignment, apparently, I agree with the sentiment of b3. This sort of incident is simply going to happen from time to time. I suppose we can put in cameras, lights, guard dogs, whatever, and there will continue to be altercations, from time to time, outside of clubs and strip clubs.

MichaelJ -

While I tend to support your line of thinking, there are 2 problems with that mindset.

  1. Thugs tend to not aim or discriminate very well and are known not to always hit their target (i.e. uninvolved getting hit while driving by??)

  2. If you let it go, then it just gets worse and more happens (refer to uninvolved getting hit.)

Whoa, I was driving past there about 1:20am and there were a bunch of people outside, but no cops...anybody know when exactly this happened?

The idea of the cameras is, I am sure, well meant, but it is useless. You are assuming that a person who shoots another person over some minor argument is rational and operating logically. They aren't, they are shooting another person because they disrespected their girlfriend, stepped on their toe, or knocked over a drink. They are crazy, putting up a camera isn't going to deter them from anything, just look at the statistics from London on the security cameras.

Pooks Interview, Continued ... Police Officer: Huh?

Frank, could care less if the shooter is rational or not. Camera's can be used after the fact to put the violently irrational in a tiny little cell. Works for me.

That's that guy's fault for having a leg. SHEESH! The nerve of some people.

These comments are just kinda silly. Camera's o.k.? Yes lets just sacrifice all of our rights because of some hood that got out of hand. We dont all live in fear so take your extremists measures elswhere please....

Sigmund 10 years, 3 months ago

Excuse me lounger, exactly what "rights" do you "think" you have in a parking lot outside a strip club? I mean besides the right not to be shot and if you are shot that the irrational violent thug should be identified, captured, tried and convicted, and then sent to jail. Take your irrational extremist fears of big brother watching your every move elsewhere....

BTW, you're an idiot.

bearded_gnome 10 years, 3 months ago

I second that, he is an idiot living in today's wacked out leftist hysteria.

besides, nothing good happens in the parking lot of a strip club after

Okay, some of you just do not have any clue as to what happened that night. Is this all you do is read articles and make up stories as to what happened and hurt other people in the process?! FYI the man who was shot was from KC but that doesnt mean anything as to his personality or demeaner, there was your first problem. Since the reports and everyone said he was from KC you all ASSUMED that he was a no-good thug that all he does is go around starting fights. Second, how do you know he was involved in the fighting?! You DONT, thats just it. They were leaving the club for the night and they went outside and there was a fight, when it proceeded to get physical, they tried to hurry and get in the car when he was shot by a stray bullet. So all they were trying to do was leave, but yet you all make him out to be some KC thug, sounds like you guys should just keep your mouth shut until you know everything, you are just hurting people. How would you like to be called a thug just because of where you are from. So now you now what really happened, lets just see what other stories you can come up with..
